OneTeam Capital (OTC), an industry leading underwriting and credit analysis company providing the best quality commercial financing solutions to small and medium sized businesses, today announced that its membership has appointed specialty finance industry veteran W. Taylor Kamp as Chief Executive Officer, effective March 11th, 2021.
Mr. Kamp brings an impressive 35 year career of building and growing businesses to OTC. Kamp most recently served as the Chief Financial Officer of Marlin Capital Solutions (Nasdaq: MRLN) beginning in 2015, where he was responsible for all accounting, treasury, M&A, investor relations and strategic analytics, demonstrating exceptional versatility. As the co-architect of Marlin’s new tech-enabled strategy for increasing returns from equipment leasing, working capital loans, insurance and efficiently utilizing the balance sheet, Mr. Kamp helped to more than double the company’s stock price and quadruple daily stock trading volume. Through the introduction of sophisticated analytics and capital management techniques, he reduced capital needs and returned capital to shareholders. He also completed Marlin’s largest securitization to date and closed Marlin’s first two acquisitions.
Before joining OTC full time, Mr. Kamp had been, for the last several months, advising OTC on various start-up, funding and growth strategies. “Taylor is a proven leader with many years of industry experience and substantial management experience in finance, M&A, restructuring, credit, strategy setting, and corporate management,” said Senior Advisory Director and member Andrew Jones. Matt Sapnar, President of OneTeam Capital said, “We are excited to have Taylor lead us into the next phase of our growth. We believe he is the right person to build upon our positive momentum because of his significant experience in successfully growing businesses, which aligns with OneTeam Capital’s strategic goals and initiatives.”
Prior to Marlin, he held various executive roles during his 15 year career at The CIT Group (NYSE:CIT). These roles included Global Head of Corporate Development and M&A and interim CEO of Home Lending and Sales Finance.
Mr. Kamp started his career in 1986 at The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and then spent 13 years at The Associates (now part of CitiBank) in various CFO roles including CFO of International Equipment Finance, CFO of Transportation Finance, and CFO of Home Equity Finance.
